    Quoted from lordloss:

    Rick and Morty would be perfect because its a fun license and adult swim would probably be really easy going with stuff they wouldn't allow and I can't imagine that would be much.

    The creators of the show are total geeks and would be all over a pinball machine. They'd have custom art, voices - hell they'd prob come up with great toys and mechs!

    Quoted from stoptap:

    Still no wiser. Is it only shown in the US ?

    It started as a riff on Doc & Marty from BTTF - it's an animated sitcom featuring alcoholic mad scientist Rick and his nerdy grandson Morty who go on crazy adventures throughout the galaxy and other dimensions.

    Quoted from stoptap:

    Ahh. So I presume the suggestion of it being made into a pin was a piss take ?

    No way - it would be a great pin! It would be Super funny and there is tons of toy/rules/design opportunity with all of the crazy creatures and gizmos from the show.

    Quoted from stoptap:

    I think they should stear clear of licences for new release films. The Hobbit films are long done and dusted and the pin still isn't out.

    I don't think for a second JJP would do Rick & Morty. It's too adult...and cool. Anyway, Rick & Morty is awesome and very popular - I could see Stern doing it. Not sure what the world-wide recognition factor is - but they were in the opening of The Simpsons last year:

    Quoted from stoptap:

    If they must do a licensed game then do something more classic like Bladerunner or Forbidden Planet.

    Those would sell zero.

    Speculating is fun - but Jack's license mantra seems to be "something the whole family can enjoy & known worldwide". So - I don't see him doing anything cult classic or geek-demo specific. Unless Stern has a total lock on Disney - I could see him doing something Disney/Pixar, Despicable Me/Minions, Peanuts or something along those lines.

    Quoted from BoozeMarlin:

    BTILC, Archer, or Blade Runner while we're dreaming.

    Cult, Adult, and Cult. JJP would never make these titles.

    Quoted from lowepg:

    Good in theory, until you realize it still needs to be purchased by COLLECTORS.
    Plus, theme alone is not going pull kids heads out of their iPhones to play pinball...If they did, then games like Shrek, Rocky & Bullwinkle, Flintstones, etc would have resulted in droves of kids clamoring for pinball.... didn't happen.
    (Please spare me the anecdotal stories of fellow pinheads kids who LOVE pinball)

    When Rocky & Bullwinkle pinball came out, kids didn't know who they were. That was a theme for old people already. The Flintstones movie was a bomb - no kid or adult at the time would have been attracted to that machine. Shrek was a little too late. It was right before the pinball resurgence, and a little too late for Shrek-mania.

    Quoted from Hazoff:

    I know it gets a bad rap but its actually a fun pin, I like the "pure shit". If there was a great theme for JJP to do its F-ing Robocop.

    JJP is the wrong company to hope makes a violent 80's sci-fi movie license. It's just not going to happen. They're going for family friendly, all demographics.

    As much as I love Robocop, it's off the pop-culture radar. A new pin would not sell....there's already a Robocop pin if anyone wants one that badly.

    Quoted from Hazoff:

    Well thats horseshit. but will save me some money.

    Homebrew it! Get an Avatar, replace the AMP Suit with an ED-209, redo all the art, and redo all the sound and animation with Pinball Browser. Bam, Robocop!

    Quoted from DCFAN:

    The TV show just got cancelled.

    That's cuz it sucked. That doesn't mean the Muppets, suck though...their legacy is beyond some poorly conceived show. Muppets pinball can be about ANYTHING...it doesn't have to be tied to a specific movie or show.
